Ring Warming: Creating an Intimate Ceremony

On May 12th we were introduced to a new ceremony tradition that we fell in love with. At the beginning of Samantha and Brooks wedding ceremony the officiant explained that the wedding rings would be passed around to each of the guests including the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen on a small ring bearer pillow. As the rings passed through the hands of each person they gave a quick blessing to the couple and their marriage to each other. Such a beautiful thing to see and a wonderful way to incorporate each person you have invited to feel like a part of your ceremony.

Buttons and Bows Baby Shower

We always get excited when there is a reason to celebrate, and when we get to throw a party that we can attend! When Colette found out that her son and daughter-in-law are expecting a baby girl, the first thing we thought was.... BABY SHOWER! We had so much fun putting together this event, and we thought through every little detail and came up with the theme "Buttons and Bows", perfect for a little girl! We had a close group of about 11 women who came to share their motherly advice and shower the new mommy-to-be in gifts. Congratulations, Trish we could not be more thrilled!

A very special thank you goes to Melissa Musgrove Photography, La Fond Catering, La Tavola Linens, and Town and Country Event Rentals. Without you, none of this would have been possible and words can not express how much your thoughtfulness and generosity is appreciated, we love you guys!

We wanted to share a sneak peak of an incredible barn wedding that we had the honor of planning and designing. At this point in time we are hoping to have it published and can only share a few of Melissa Musgrove's extraordinary images. We can not wait to share more, choosing only a few was next to impossible! A special thank you to everyone involved in making this wedding so very special:

Out & About in Los Angeles: at the Sofitel Hotel

We have to extend a HUGE thank you to Jen O' Sullivan Photography and the the Event Specialists International! Last night we had the most amazing time at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles, and had a blast seeing some of our dearest friends in the industry! We were included in a select few, who received complimentary hair & make-up services, as well as manicures and foot rubs... What a treat!! The women of Design Visage worked quickly and did a beautiful job on both of our hair and make-up, we were very impressed! Once we were all dolled up we made our way into the grand event hosted by Belvedere, California Wedding Day, and the Sofitel Hotel. One of our favorite entertainment acts, 11H Entertainment, was performing so we knew were were going to have a great time! 

Last but certainly not least, we NEVER miss a good photo booth!!!
